Abbot’s Re-Entry In Cricket After Hughes Tragic Death

Sports News:
After the tragic death of Philip Hughes caused by an unfortunate bouncer of Sean Abbott, Sean Abbott for the first time reappeared on the pitch. Not only that he came back, but also he was in form and secured two wickets to his credit. In the same match, Abbott managed to bowl a bouncer as well during his very first over on the first day of four days cricket match. The match was being played against Queensland at the same star-crossed ground where some days back Hughes was injured to death-the Sidney cricket ground. The deceased died at the tender age of 25.

Abbott at the cost of 53 runs managed to get two wickets. He sent Nathan Reardon and Ben Cutting back to pavilion. Abbott remained depressed for so many days because of self guilty and when he finally appeared on the ground for bowling in 13th over spectators encouraged him with a round of applause and cheering. He bowled bouncer on 5th ball of his first over.

In the grief of deceased Hughes, New South Wales appeared in match with black bands on their arms. Hughes was 707th player in state team and NWS were wearing shirts embroidered with words “PJH 707”. Hughes died in hospital on 27th November this year due to deadly struck of ball over his shoulders two days earlier. The unlucky short pitched ball was bowled by abbot. Abbot took great effect to his mind but it was Australian people’s support and cricket board’s counseling that aided a lot him during his upset condition. The same thing- support and counselling – helped him coming back to team. NSW captain Moises Henriques told that we are trying hard to console him because he obviously was not responsible for the tragic incident.
